Cutthroat Competition Will Not Make You Win the Promotion

TalkShop tips to win the promotionThe level of engagement in today’s workplace may be intense and rough but the means to connect and communicate remain soft and polished. Multitasking, heavier workloads, and highly qualified peers make competition for a promotion stiff. If you are vying for a promotion, it pays not only to do a good job and reach your goals constantly, but to also strategize how to manage your relationships better and interact harmoniously.

Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO, explains, “In a more complicated workplace where promotion is not based on merit alone, one has to learn to navigate through intricate social and political networks, while giving his best.” She shares tips on how to win that promotion:

1. Make an honest assessment. What are your strengths? Are these enough to take you to the next level? Keep abreast of the latest in the industry best practices and trends.

2. Speak up. Take advantage of the opportunity to get noticed during meetings. Come up with keen observations and smart ideas.

3. Go the extra mile. Take on assignments beyond your tasks. This is a chance to show your leadership skills.

4. Take pride in your work. Don’t wait for someone to notice your work. Whenever they can inspire and add sensible value to discussions, articulate your stories of accomplishments.

5. Accept praise graciously. Do not downplay it. Take the chance to underscore your commitment and loyalty. For instance, say “Thanks, I always give my very best.

6. Share your knowledge as you demonstrate a greater sense of engagement by routing news clippings and feature stories, sharing books, links and CDs. This takes your engagement to a higher level.
